Where to store your private key : This may sound odd, but nowhere. The best thing is to remember it. Or just remember your Brainwallet words. If none of these is viable, then store i ton paper, locked away from anything or anyone. What happens if you loose your key? Please check here (LINK TO COMMON ISSUES).
Brain wallet : We shall all agree, that remembering a 64 character long hexadecimal string is not so easy. This is why we implemented the Brainwallet technology, which uses at least five meaningful and not-so-hard to remember words as a private key. Well technically it’s not your private key, but after sending it through an algorythm, it will translate to you private key. And it will always translate to your same unique private key. Would you like to see it in action? Head over to our Keytools page to fiddle around. If you don’t like the random words, you can use whichever you like. Remember, always keep your Brainwallet words and your plain private key secure! Whomever knows it, has full access to your address and funds inside.
Two-factor authentication : As it is in it’s name, Two-factor authentication (or 2FA for short) brings a new element (factor) into the equation. Using 2FA you will be requested to input a few additional characters at login for extra security. These - often 6-digit numbers – are only visible on your mobile devices and are valid for a very short period of time to maximize protection. First things first, acquire an authenticator from your Play Store, App Store or Windows Store and install it on your phone. Currently Corion uses Google Authenticator as it’s main and only Authentication provider. Enabling 2FA please go to your wallet settings (detailed guide HERE - common issues). If you switch 2FA on than whenever you are about to access Corion wallet, you will be asked for a secondary, temporary password that is accessible via your secondary (preferably mobile) device, using the 3rd party authenticator. Corion currently uses Google Authenticator for this. You will have to type in a 6-digit number under 15-20 sec to proceed with the login.
cID (Corion ID) is an additional layer of encryption, works like a PIN code.
If you change password or cID you should make a manual wallet backup, as the backup is also password protected. If you change the password the existing (old) backup still would be protected with the old password.
We highly recommend to have cID turned on, as if you forget your password and you request password reset with cID in place you can avoid having your wallet getting into watch only mode (for ever).
Data privacy : We do not give out personal information to any 3rd party. We do hate spams too :)
